News I'm Gonna Pray For You So Hard, With Reed Birney and Betty Gilpin, Extends Run at the Atlantic The world premiere of I'm Gonna Pray For You So Hard, a new family drama by Halley Feiffer that stars Tony nominee Reed Birney and "Nurse Jackie" star Betty Gilpin as father and daughter, has extended its run at the Atlantic Theater Company through March 1.

Directed by Trip Cullman, the production officially opened Jan. 20 following performances that began Jan. 7. It had originally been scheduled to run through Feb. 15 at Atlantic Stage 2.

"Ella is a precocious and fiercely competitive actress whose sole aim in life is making her famous playwright father David proud," press notes state. "Over the course of a boozy, drug-fueled evening, Ella and David deliberate over whether to read the reviews of her Off Broadway debut… and things unravel from there. Halley Feiffer's dark, probing and very funny new play pulls the audience into the middle of a deeply complicated relationship and sheds new light on the eternal struggles of parents and children to find common ground."

Birney recently starred in Casa Valentina on Broadway, and his stage credits include Picnic, Uncle Vanya and Circle Mirror Transformation. He also appears in "House of Cards." Gilpin has performed in Where We’re Born, Heartless and We Live Here. Her screen credits include "Nurse Jackie" and "The Good Wife."

I'm Gonna Pray For You So Hard  features scenic design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Ben Stanton and sound design by Daniel Kluger.

Atlantic Stage 2 is located at 330 West 16th Street. Visit atlantictheater.org for more information.
